Next generation Hexagon CMM platform enhances precision part manufacturers’ productivity

31 October 2019
Hexagon’s enhanced 3D multisensor OPTIV M coordinate measuring machine (CMM) gives manufacturers of small and medium precision parts the greater configuration flexibility and future readiness they need to increase productivity within their unique environment.

Hexagon today launched the multisensor OPTIV M CMM which deploys Hexagon’s Enhanced Productivity Series (EPS) to provide manufacturers of small and medium precision parts a range of configuration packages optimised for their individual applications.

The successful EPS concept offers manufacturers a choice of productivity drivers based on their application’s need for throughput, precision, flexibility or shop floor capability. The pre-configured, highly evolutive EPS packages make it simpler for quality engineers and CMM operators to create, execute and analyse measurement routines that drive higher productivity. The OPTIV M is available in three performance levels of Green, Blue and Chrome, making it ideal for a full range of budgets and applications.

Dr. Tobias M. Weber, Product Manager Vision says: “The OPTIV M multisensor CMM helps precision part manufacturers in fast-paced, competitive environments raise inspection productivity in line with their specific business goals. On top of satisfying demand for a multisensor CMM tailored for today’s applications, the OPTIV M is designed to adapt readily to future smart technologies and changing production requirements.” A flexible, easily upgradable configuration makes the OPTIV M future-ready and compatible with a comprehensive portfolio of contactless and tactile sensors, software and collaborative technologies. In addition to the EPS packages configured for throughput, precision, flexibility or shop floor capability, Hexagon offers a customised version of the OPTIV M.

The OPTIV M CMM is available worldwide via local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
